Just Bought a Used 2004
By S Lanoue on
2004 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
I've only owned the vehicle for 4 days and I'm quite attached already. The engine is powerful. One caution to first-time BMW drivers, the car uses premium gas. There are plenty of unique features that I'll be reading about for days and learning how to use (rain sensing windshield wipers, self-adjusting headlights, etc.). It does seem a bit utilitarian in the scarcity of luxury-type interior features (where's the built-in sunglass holder and coin rack?). Also, the ride is very springy/bouncy, not as smooth as I expected. Nonetheless, I am smitten at least with the novelty of it all.
Radio shows the artist's name and song's title when it's playing (kinda cool if you've ever wondered the name of a song you didn't know). Also, the AC filter pulls excess dust/pollen from the car's interior. And, let's not forget the self-adjusting car headlights.
